Tea Cakes To Pair With Your Afternoon Cuppa

Shakespeare might have famously proclaimed music the food of love, but here in our home, the food of love is quite simply a teacake. Often taking shape in a loaf pan or a small cake tin, these restorative tea-time bites are often the best part of our day.

They’re impressive to whip out when having guests over, but just as suited for you and a cuppa. Truly, nothing puts the world to rights quite as reassuringly as a tea cake!
